They carefully matched their students to our job specifications and provided excellent support for everyone throughout the internship. We had the opportunity to work with very talented, excited interns and provided them some great real life experience. We’re looking forward to working with Golden Sierra again.
The paperwork for the OTJ program was minimal and easy to complete, staff minimized my involvement by coordinating directly with the job candidate, staff was available and responsive to answer the questions I did have, and the reimbursement process is simple and straightforward.
We have two employees who graduated from the OJT Program, our office manager who is going on four years and a computer technician who has been here for 1 ½ years. Golden Sierra posted a job description for a Business Services Independent Contractor. Within a few days we had 10 applicants to interview and employed a highly qualified person from the group.
Candidates placed by Golden Sierra are hardworking individuals who stay on-task, are willing to learn new skills and desire to be a positive member of our work team.
Compassion Planet looks forward to a long-term working relationship with Golden Sierra to ensure together we can provide a positive work experience to help young (18-25 year olds) at-risk youth develop the necessary work and people skills to ensure that they will be productive and successful contributors to our community.
When we needed to add scanning technicians for our business to meet a big project deadline, they provided us with prescreened applicants. We were able to finish that project on time and under budget thanks to Golden Sierra and the various programs like WEX and OJT they offered. We acquired some excellent workers and even though our work has slowed down for now, we still have one of the workers working for us full time. She is a great worker and we are happy to have her as part of our full time team.
My experience working with Golden Sierra has been very positive. The process to hiring our intern was painless and smooth, the Golden Sierra team did a great job in finding the right candidates and onboarding the intern.
Our experience with Golden Sierra has been more than excellent. The staff are professional, well organized, and make super use of their resources.
I’m looking forward to participating in the WEX program again not only for technical interns but for other positions for my growing company.
In a nutshell, Golden Sierra made participation in the program unexpectedly easy for employers, which was a huge relief for me as a small business owner. What I didn’t appreciate until later in the process was how much the reimbursement actually helped to offset the cost of training a new employee, particularly a first employee.
